S2 Tech

All Fortune Fund sponsored students are matched with an S2Tech mentor

The Fortune Fund Mentoring Program works to develop strong, healthy relationships between the students and mentors. Mentors actively listen, give feedback, and offer encouragement in their pursuit of education.

S2Tech mentors are pivotal to the success of the Fortune Fund. The mentors are S2Tech employees who volunteer for the pleasure of knowing they will influence a young person in a positive way. The mentors give their time and careful attention to help the students continue to learn and grow throughout their educational career.


The mentors talk with the Fortune Fund students on a monthly basis, and may provide additional counseling outside of the scheduled call. Once per year, S2Tech provides means for the new Fortune Fund students and their families to visit the S2Tech development center in Hyderabad to see what "life in the big city" is all about. The mentors enjoy showing the students their computers and teaching them how to email and use applications like Paint and Draw. This in-person introduction between the mentors and mentees creates a bond that will last throughout their school experience.

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, do more, and become more, you are a leader."
-John Quincy Adams

 

 

 

Many students remain in school because of the support provided by their mentors...

Atmaja* was a very bright student, and dreamed of becoming an engineer. Atmaja's parents dreamt of her marriage to a boy in their village, meaning Atmaja would have to leave school and begin a new life with her new family.

 

When Atmaja's mentor found out that she might be pulled out of school, she and Atmaja's teachers, reached out to the parents to counsel them and encourage them to let her stay in school to pursue her passion for engineering. Her parents were reminded of the importance of Atmaja's education, the impact it would have on her independence and the ways a full education could benefit her family.

 

The family was reassured that the Fortune Fund would assist Atmaja along the way, helping her achieve her dream of becoming an engineer by providing monetary support and guidance from a mentor. Atmaja's family allowed her to stay in school and continue to pursue her dream of becoming an engineer.
